    What's fascinating about that video is he is flying #2 and giving her hand signals. I would have thought her job was to fly and his is to stay in position on her. I can't imagine when she can look back and see his hand signals. Maybe he only cues the call of the next maneuver. They are on the radios. :dunno:

    Ah yes. The French Connection. I saw them several times and always enjoyed their routine. Two more casualties of the air show circuit.
